    Default Breast Cancer

    My mum just called me and told me she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
    She doesn't know any details yet, she has to go back to the doctor tomorrow.
    This isn't supposed to happen. She's in only 48 this year.
    I don't know how to feel, I don't want to panic or feel sad because we don't yet know how serious it is.
    My poor mum, I don't know what to say to her.
    I also feel sorry for dad as mum is the love of his life and I can't imagine what he is going through.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. I remember what it felt like when my mum told me she had a tumor on her pancreas and the dr wanted to remove it. This only happened late last year so we still don't know the implications for my mum either but they did find cancer so it's not good.

    Just tell your mum you love her and will support her thru the process whatever that may be. I hope it's in very early stages and they can get rid of it ASAP. Xo

    So sorry to hear this

    My MIL had breast cancer two years ago and, thankfully, it was picked up very early during a routine mammogram. She had it removed, had a couple of weeks of radiotherapy and it is now behind her.

    I'm hoping the same for your poor mum

    i'm so sorry, i know exactly what you are going through. my mom was 43 when she was diagnosed.

    i hope it's an early diagnosis and everything goes well for you and your family.

    That totally sucks.

    My grandmother had breast cancer at 48 and is currently 85 and still going strong. She had another bout in her 60s and had a double mastectomy.

    they have caught it in time for your Mum.
